  1. She was actually the monarch of Jamaica before 1962, they were just not an independent country…. so it was covered by her being Queen of the UK, realms across the sea, etc.

  2. Supposedly if the queen is running late at an event, when they’re due to announce her the announcer just works his way down through all her titles from various parts of the commonwealth she’s still queen of to play for time

    That said, a lot of carribean nations are abolishing the monarchy. I’m jealous of them in that regard
